Hello Giorgio

There’s a new ultra-sleek credit card sized touch-screen luxury phone designed by Giorgio Armani for Samsung that’s out in the market now. I checked it out this afternoon and here’s my take on this fashionable piece of technology.

The package including its black simulated brushed aluminium box is the epitome of the Italian designer’s Minimalist aesthetic. The phone is barely 10.5 mm thin which fits sensuously into my palm and comes with a black designer leather case and ultra-suede pouch.

What I like most about this phone is its large 2.6 inch LCD touch screen that maximizes your visual experience and optimises the use of its multi-media features such as a 3-megapixel camera with flash, a music player supporting various types of music formats and a full internet browser.

Finally, the muted grey and amber tones of the graphics and touch screen buttons plus the Haptic feedback which creates a little vibration when you click an on-screen option are plus points beautifully merging Giorgio Armani’s elegant design style and simplicity with Samsung’s cutting edge technology on one piece of stylish, functional unit.

I’m giving a rating of eight out of ten styluses to Samsung’s P520 Giorgio Armani phone.
